Hello,
I've got a problem with my Racing Ralph 2.1 UST. I've tried to mount them on my SLR rims, and both always blow off when I inflate 2-2.5 BAR. One tyre is slightly used, another brand new. Where can be a problem?

tires used with selant?
if yes, you must remove any trace of old selant on contact surface between tire and rim.

if no,
check riim

Isn´t it possible to inflate your tires to max recommended presure? Will the tires blow off while inflating and reaching pressure of 2-2,5BAR? Or you mean that when you inflate the tires to 2-2,5BAR they will blow off in a short time?
If this is the problem, try to inflate your tires to max pressure. It will find its possition on the rim. After 2 or 3 minutes decrease the pressure to your desired value.

One ralph is used, other - new.
It looks I've done everything right. Soupy water, bead put in to the center groove. Then I try to inflate it. It starts to pop-op ant when it reaches preashure 1.5-2 BAR (sometimes 2.5 BAR) it blows off the rim before reaching the max preasure. Looks like these tyres are spoilaged... Some guys told me that these tyres only suitable for trash...
